We can't wait for cinemas to open up again - and what a treat is in store. Marvel's Black Widow will premiere on Disney+ at the same time as being shown in cinemas.

The much-anticipated superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz has been postponed from May to 9 July but it's looking likely that cinemas are finally going to open up across the UK from 17 May.

Emma Stone’s origin story Cruella lands in cinemas on 28 May, the good news is that it will also be made available to Disney+ subscribers. 

Both Black Widow and Cruella will be available on Premier Access which requires an additional fee.

Disney postponed multiple film releases during the pandemic including comedy Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds which has been postponed back to August.

Adventure film Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings has also been pushed back to September.

According to Disney, we'll have to wait until January 2022 to see thriller Deep Water, while Taron Egerton’s The King’s Man will land in December.
